    I too am waiting to see the new CTS and what sort of powertrain options it will have. However, they just unveiled the ELR today so I imagine that is Cadillac's priority for the Detroit show. I guess the CTS will show up at Chicago or NYC.

    I wish they would hurry up and spill the details. The new Corvette is looking quite attractive and if I could pair it with a diesel ATS for a daily driver...I might just cry a little.

    ELR looks pretty close to the CTS Coupe --- amazingly close. Would be a great transition of the CTS coupe to this....

    I believe it is smaller though. Given how difficult it is getting in the back of the CTS coupe, I can't imagine it in the ELR.

    Actually, it surprised me that the two models are quite close in the specs published by Cadillac:

    ELR Coupe Weight 4070 pounds; CTS-4 Coupe 4096 pounds. ELR Coupe Length 186 inches; CTS-4 Coupe length 188.5 inches. ELR Coupe wheelbase 106.1 inches; CTS-4 Coupe 113.4 inches. ELR Coupe trunk 9 cubic feet volume; CTS-4 Coupe trunk 10.5 cubic feet volume.

    Cadillac describes the ELR Coupe as a "2 + 2" and mentions its rear seats fold to accommodate golf bags. Of course, the rear seat of the CTS-4 Coupe folds, too. The full length console in the ELR Coupe looks nicely done--and I read something about an electric cup holder cover.

    Wow. Since they have been saying it's based on the Volt, I assumed it was similar dimensionally.

    It is too bad the ELR drivetrain is quite similar to the Volt--but maybe this will lower the price from its projected levels? The ELR Coupe's proportions are those of its front-wheel-drive system, so I find the appearance of the CTS Coupes much nicer, but the trendiness of having a hybrid should assure its success in the marketplace. It's time for Cadillac to re-fresh the CTS Coupe with niceties like door mirror turn indicators, heads-up display and redesigned wheels--especially if they're not bringing out a Generation III CTS Coupe anytime soon.
